 Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark had its first preview performance on Broadway Sunday night. So how did Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor's (Titus, Frida, Across the Universe) $65 million big stage comic adaptation hold up? Find out after the jump. Disclaimer: It should be noted that a preview performance is not final, much like a test screening of a feature film. The performers are basically putting on a dress rehearsal, and the director uses the audience to tweak and make changes before opening night. The show proper is set to open in January 11th 2011, giving them six weeks to get it right. Thus, please do not take these reader reviews as an accurate representation of the final stage performance. The consensus is that it is a visually stunning with major story issues and lackluster music, but still shows potential. New York Times : The show stopped five times, mostly to fix technical problems, »

CBS’ 60 Minutes did a segment tonight on Julie Taymor’s upcoming musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. With music by U2’s Bono and The Edge, it is the most expensive musical in Broadway history. Part of that is due to the production’s continued delays and, according to 60 Minutes, the operating cost is $1 million a week. Another interesting fact gleamed from 60 Minutes‘ story is that one of the show’s original producers had a seizure and died when Bono and The Edge were about to sign their contracts. No one took that as a bad sign.
Tonight, the $65 million musical began it’s first night of previews. According to WENN, the show’s only full rehearsal was scheduled for last night, but had to be canceled, which means tonight, in front of an audience, is the first time it’s ever been performed from start to finish. Hit the »

A few weeks ago we asked readers to submit up to five of their favorite movies in our third annual favorite gay film poll. We wanted to see which older gay films have timeless appeal and which recent gay films you judged important enough to register in the rankings.
After voting closed we sorted through the nearly 15,000 nominations (representing over 500 individual titles) to identify your top fifty favorite gay films.
Tabulating this data is actually a bit harder than it sounds. For instance, do you know how many different ways our readers can type/abbreviate "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert?" We counted about a dozen!
But we're not complaining, because the list that resulted this year is actually rather interesting.
Nine new films made their way into the rankings, and five of these are of very recent vintage. This represents a strong showing for current queer cinema. »

Plus Scott Pilgrim surprises, bad news on Prop 8, and which Brothers & Sisters character are you?
So, by now you know that the 9th Circuit has stayed Judge Walker’s decision. They have the appeal on an expedited schedule, with first briefs due September 17th, and every 30 days after that, with a hearing on December 6. Sadly, this is light speed for the American judicial system, so I guess we should be grateful. Olsen and Boies don’t seem fazed in the least.
In other bad news on the gay front, Target has announced that it will not be making a matching donation to the Hrc or other gay causes to “balance the books.” I’m actually O.K. with this, because it felt like extortion to me. If they can think thru future actions better, that’s probably the best we can hope for. The Hrc is going to commit $150,000 of »
According to Alienbee.biz, “Neighbor makes Hostel and Saw look like 'Romper Room'...” While I don't agree with the quote outright, I'll agree that Neighbor is a depraved film that does little to hold back its brutality. Directed by Robert Angelo Masciantonio, it has the right formula for a classic horror/thriller, unfortunately, its execution proved to be full of gaping holes.
Neighbor stars actress America Olivo, who is billed as “the girl”. She introduces herself under several different aliases, but her true name is never revealed. She plays a psychotic serial killer who roams an upscale suburban neighborhood, killing at her whim. The film focuses on her torture of Don (Christian Campbell), along with the many others whom she victimizes throughout this 90 minute film.
The opening sequence fails to waste anytime in introducing the graphic brutality that is a key ingredient in Neighbor. The events itself are pretty disturbing, »

Ok, I give up. I have absolutely no idea what the heck is going to happen in season 6 of Supernatural. Now that the newest casting spoilers have been making the rounds, I am officially ceasing to even speculate what's in store for the Winchester brothers next season and can only hope that Comic Con (the Supernatural panel will take place on Sunday, July 25) will shed some light on what to expect in September.
Before moving onto the new spoilers, let's recap. We already know the show intends to return to its more monster-of-the-week roots, but still with a season-long story arc. We already know that Sam will pull Dean out of his "normal life" and back into a life of hunting. We already know that Grandpa Campbell (having, you know, Died back in the 1970s) will somehow become a recurring characteron the show next season (as Mitch Pileggi has been »

Last week, I was lucky enough to find a link through a news site I follow on Twitter. The link I read said to show up Friday April 23rd at midnight to The Cinema Slaughter Horror Fest and be "treated to an upcoming, anticipated horror flick." My brain immediately went to convincing my body it was A Nightmare On Elm Street. That's upcoming and anticipated! I jumped on this right quick, thinking I was onto something. I promised Mike C and Phil Fasso a story about this event. I was amped! This was, of course, before I thought to do a little more research, which brought me to realization this was a screening for the movie Neighbor, written and directed by Robert Angelo Masciantonio. I found the trailer online and immediately kicked myself in the face for agreeing to go to this. This »
The Cinema Slaughter Horror Film Festival will begin Friday, April 23rd and run until May 7th. Two films will show, which include Neighbor and Shellter. Shellter involves an underground medical facility and the living dead. The film sees a world infected with a virus where "the only way of curing the infection is by surgically removing the affected area" (Shellter). On the other side of the coin, Neighbor is about an anonymous girl who goes door to door "torturing and slaughtering anyone" who gets in her way (Neighbor). Trailer locations for both films are below and this event will be held in West Hollywood, with location details inside.
Release Date: April 23rd (Limited Release).
Director/writer: Robert A. Masciantonio.
